Artistic Gymnastics for Girls
We are a Womens Artistic Gymnastics Club providing classes for girls from walking age upwards. Fun, structured and progressive sessions that will see your child grow into a confident, determined and accomplished gymnast
Furness Gymnastics Club has been helping girls reach their potential in gymnastics since the 1970s, within the Women's Artistic discipline.
Run as a not-for-profit club and through the support of many dedicated volunteers, we provides classes for over 200 gymnasts a week. Classes are provided for complete beginners right through to competitive gymnasts, making sure there is something for children of all ages and abilities
We have decades of experience within our team, and have had success at county, regional and national levels. Our qualified coaches are trained to the highest standard through British Gymnastics
JOIN OUR CLUB
To register your daughter with the club please fill in a waiting list form...
Girls can take part in classes as soon as they are confidently walking
Children can join the waiting list at any age, they will then be placed in a class once they have reached the top of the waiting list and have reached the appropriate age.
Parents will receive the Club Rules on joining the club and fees will be payable per half-term / full term
There is a high demand for places, so our waiting list is a long one.
We will contact you as soon as a place becomes available.
There are lots of ways parents, former gymnasts and other supporters can get involved. From helping out around the club, doing a bit of cleaning or maintenance, helping with fundraising or taking the step into coaching or judging.

We are very lucky to have a well equipment permanent gymnastics hall. Our facilities include the asymmetric bars, trampettes, several beams, vaulting tables and a full size floor area. Our beautiful viewing balcony retains the historical features of Greater Kings Hall.
We are also the only club in Cumbria to have a foam block safety pit, which allows our gymnasts to tackle new moves without the fear of injury.
In 2013/14 one of our coaches, a local filmmaker, approached the club about shooting a short gymnastics film at our club. The film featured many of our gymnasts.
The film called FIghting for Perfection can be watched here
Gymnasts who are placed in a Competitive Squad class work towards various competitions throughout the year.
Gymnasts compete at different levels based on their age and ability, working their way from novice competitions to regional and national levels.
